As an Orton-Gillingham certified tutor, I love using my magnetic letter board for making manipulating sounds hands-on for my students. Some of my students, however, need more support and scaffolding in order to be successful. Some have trouble recognizing lowercase letter forms; others still need prompting with a keyword to remember a letter's sound.
I created these letter tiles for those learners who need support. They are slightly larger than the letter tiles I use with older students, to make it easier for little fingers. With these letter tiles, even my youngest students can play with letters and discriminate between sounds, thanks to the differentiation I have embedded in this set. I have tiles with uppercase letters only, tiles with upper- and lowercase pairs, and tiles with lowercase letters only. All tiles include a keyword picture that corresponds to the Wilson © keyword list. I have used this list because Wilson Foundations © is a common program in use for these younger learners, and it allows me to use the same keywords many of my students hear in their main classroom. This file also includes full-page posters of every tile, for your use as posters or playing cards. Please note that this resource is my own support piece and NOT associated with Wilson Language © in any way.
You can use these tiles in small groups, in independent centers, in one-on-one settings, in a school, or at home. For an easy and inexpensive surface for your tiles, you can find cookie sheets at most dollar stores.
I hope you find this resource to be helpful to you with your students. My preK students and kindergarten students absolutely love playing with my letter tiles.
